charming guest house in Provence Luberon
Situated in the heart of the hilltop village of Caseneuve near the town of Apt which is famous for its colourful provencal market, the Bastide de Caseneuve is a charming Chambres d'hotes spread over three levels. The Bastide which dates from the early 18th century was for many years the village Manor House before being converted into a youth hostel, and now in its latest incarnation has been tastefully converted into a Chambres d'hotes where quiet calm and conviviality reign
Having been totally and sympathetically restored the Bastide de Caseneuve is located close to the base of the 12th century castle of Caseneuve, and from its gardens and terraces offers exceptional views of the "Monts de Vaucluse" and the montagne de "Lure". Its library/lounge complete with Provencal fireplace, its large kitchen dining room, and its four guest rooms all combine to offer a haven of peace and tranquillity.
Breakfast and dinner* is served on the terrace during the summer months. You will be able to taste our home-made jams and pastries as well as our Provencal specialities created using local produce. During the winter months you will be able to make yourself at home in a comfortable armchairs in front of the fire, where we will be delighted to serve you with tea and coffee and a selection of biscuits.
